    Winton - Abkürzung beendet!

    September 30, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    With Winton we have reached the end of Australia's longest shortcut. It is a small city with several hotels, pubs and cafes. From here there are only 599km left to the ocean!

    Wir haben Winton und damit das Ende der 2724km langen Abkürzung erreicht. Jetzt bleiben noch 599km bis nach Townsville an der Ostküste Australiens. Mit anderen Worten sind wir spätestens übermorgen wieder am Strand!

    Winton ist eine kleine Stadt mit zahlreichen Cafés, Pubs und Hotels. Heute Abend werden wir uns ein leckeres Steak und das ein oder andere Bier in einem der Pubs gönnen.
    Hier in Winton wurde übrigens im Jahr 1920 die bis heute größte australische Fluggesellschaft Qantas gegründet.

    Winton - Dinoasaur museum

    June 30, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We called in to see the Dinosaur museum which houses the worlds largest collection of Australian Dinosaurs fossils. The museum is situated on a high jump up with wonderful views over the surrounding country.

    It all began with the discovery of a giant femur. In 1999 while mustering sheep on his property Belmont near Winton, David Elliott discovered the fossilised bone of what was, at the time, Australia’s largest dinosaur. This bone was later identified as part of a giant femur from a Cretaceous sauropod that roamed the Winton area 95 million years ago.

    Chicken Racing, Winton

    August 7, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Wow, camel racing then pig racing ... now chicken racing!
    The chicken's feathers have been dyed and they are all trained to chase after a remote control car, (which is filled with chicken feed).
    There is also an auction which raises funds for a local charity. When we were there we bet $6 on the orange chicken, "Apricot" and $12 on a multi colored chicken named "Diamantina". The prize money was $50. Sadly we didn't win but it's great fun to watch.Read more

    Musical Fence, Winton

    August 8, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Lots of different types of instruments all made out of recycled materials.
    The best 2 are the drums and the musical fence itself.
    The musical fence is a wire fence and each wire plays a different tune.
    It's a really great spot to have lunch, (but it can be noisy!)
